The amount of image data used in medical institution is increasing rapidly with great development of medical technology. Therefore, an automation method that use image processing description, rather than manual macrography of doctors, is required for the analysis large medical data. Specially, medical image registration, which is the process of finding the spatial transform that maps points from one image to the corresponding points in another image, and 3D analysis and visualization skills for a series of 2D images are essential technologies. However, a high establishment cost raise a budget problem, and hence small scaled hospitals hesitate importing these medical visualizing system. In this paper, we propose a visualization system which allows user to manage datasets and manipulates medical images registration using an open source graphics tool - VTK(Visualization Tool Kit). The propose of our research is to get more accurate 3D diagnosis system in less expensive price, compared to existing systems.
